the republican governor of wisconsin scott walker wants to try to change the rules again. this time to make it so you can no longer register to vote on election day, even though wisconsin has had that system since 1976 and seems to be work ing just fine. why does he want to make that change? why does he want to get rid of same-day voter registration? almost one in five voters in the last election in milwaukee registered and voted on the same day. milwaukee had 87% voter turnout, which should be a good thing, right? unless you see that as a problem in your state. also registering and voting on the same day was popular during the wisconsin recall elections during the past year "on or near milwaukee's college campuses." so that's popular with college kids, who so happen not to like republican candidates that much. so scott walker says that voting and registering has to go. that rule must be changed. you guys, republicans, florida, ohio, wisconsin, all of you, don't you find this embarrassing? i mean if the only way you think you can win an election is to make it more difficult for people who support

governor scott walker is opting out because he says operating the exchange we will cost up to 60 million for wisconsin each year and federal funding is only guaranteed for one year. if we assume the exchange's cost about $50 million, on average for each state in the union, a conservative estimate, by the way, that would still amount to the into a half billion dollars. two and a half billion. and you say, well, where is the federal government and all of this? well, they are there with all of their support that they can possibly bring. health and human services has a billion dollar fund to ma $1 billion. these governors, republican and democrat are no dummies. they know that leaves a little problem. one and a half billion dollars packages in the operation of the exchanges themselves. into in terms of what is driving this. oklahoma governor says it is not just setting an exchange. it is setting a big bureaucracy. she says, these programs will be state-run in name only. control is the second reason. then next regulations, regulations so far. this is incredible. obamacare has now, right now 1
they made two years ago when scott walker became governor and both chambers of the state legislature flipped from democrat to republican. that was followed by a recall campaign started by public- sector labor unions aided by democratic state legislators and voters. all inll, ited to the chief fact of political life in wisconsin: bitterly divided, almost permanent political warfare for almost three years now. this is state that is both energized and exhausted. >> i can't wait for it to be done. i'm just tired of all the negative things. one person trashes the other one. >> the ads all seem to be negative. you kind of tune them out when it's negative. >> it is annoying with all the calls and the ads and all that kind of stuff. most people know who they're going to vote for anyway. >> reporter: republicans think they can build on the grassroots campaign that succeeded in thwarting the recall effort and on having native son paul ryan on the ticket. yesterday, the campaign brought a surprise star-- ann romney to the green bay field office to greet volunteers.

county was one of them. but then it swung back to republican scott walker for governor in 2010. the question is what next? st. norbert college political scientist wendy scattergood says that even in a deeply divided electorate, the wisconsin tradition of tough-minded independent voters is alive and well. >> they tend to be moderates. they do want to see bi- partisanship. they want to see people working together. and so when they get really frustrated or if their perception is that either on the right of the left that they're moving too far to the extreme, they throw them out of office. but having done that only two years ago it wouldn't surprise you that this state could flip again? yeah, absolutely. we have a tradition of being very, very closely matched between democrats and republicans, so those independents can make all the difference. >> you can canvass, phone, input data, whatever you want. >> reporter: how many persuadables are there? that's also being pursued by some major non-party player, who are, by law, required to work independently from the parties. one is we are
. the republicans are up a bad creek without a paddle. conservative governors like bobby jindal and scott walker have emerged, trying to moderate their party's agenda. but jindal and walker both had no answers on what they would do for the middle class. >> president obama says look, let's extend the bush tax cuts, the lower tax rates for 98% of all taxpayers, including the middle class right now. i'll sign it today. he took out his pen at the news conference. and the republicans are saying no, no, no, we can't do that until we decide what we're going to do with the top 2% of taxpayers. why wouldn't a middle class voter look at that and say these guys, the gop, are all about protecting the rich? >> crystal clear. pretty direct question, wouldn't you think? here is jindal's answer. >> we need to make it very clear we're not the party protecting the rich. they can protect themselves. we're the party that wants growth, pro-growth policies. >> no, no, no, it's the answer. i was at a football game last night, and i didn't see a punt any better than that one which you just saw from governor bobby jinda

would you like me to add your name to this list? he said no. >> cross one out. >> i pick scott walker actually, scott walker, governor of wisconsin, is the guy who actually did what a lot of republicans want to do, which is he took on the entrenched interests behind the spending that's killing a lot of states, is hurting our own federal deficit. so i think scott walker is someone who can say, look, i've done this, it was not easy, and i succeeded. as far as democrats are concerned, it's really a far less wide-open race, i think, than with republicans, simply because you have this hillary clinton decision out there, whether she does or doesn't. if she doesn't, i think you might have some democrats saying, you know, we won with the senator the last timing, but that's really, really unusual. governors are good. and martin o'malley of maryland, brian schweitzer of montana are two possibilities. >> greta: i think governor o'malley, a big choice, obviously someone people have their eyes on, but also cory booker, a mayor on the democratic side from newark, new jersey. we'll see a lot of core
scott walker had to take on collective bargaining rights first, make the changes to the benefits, because you saw this play out in school districts, where walker's reforms took effect, they were able to balance the budget, make changes to healthcare plans, like a $10k10 copay, and make people may into their retirement funds. some schools locked into the bargaining agreements before the walker law took effect and kept on going. maybe it wasn't plastic surgery, but you're seeing teachers getting fired instead of making benefit reductions. >> greta: it isn't just plastic surgery, but it's airline travel, expensive hotels, limousine. i mean, this is quite a school district to work for. >> and it was $9 million for plastic surgery a few years ago. by the way, there is no copay. i mean, you have this operation and don't pay anything. >> greta: i don't understand why everybody isn't up in arms. i mean, why just now? you would have thought when it was $9 million they'd be angry about it. >> you'd need a political system that's in the mood, that scott walker and republicans were in in wis
their states operate. we have scott walker in wisconsin who beat back multimillion dollar push by the unions to survive that recall. we have john kasich in ohio who's had his ups and downs, but that state is humming along really well. megyn: what about the social issues? >> they didn't come into play. megyn: they're zeroing in on. >> those social issues did not come into play except to the democrats' advantage. why? because they could define mitt romney as a part of the war on women because why? mitt romney never really made the affirmative case to women. when was mitt romney making the case to female small business owners? where was mitt romney talking about the fact that the faith-based community has done more to lift women up from poverty and dejection and difficulty than any community i believe in the united states, including the mormon faith which has done more to help people in times of need. so i think he left that issue on the table. so it was easy for them to caricature mitt romney. oh, you want to take women's contraception. because in the end mitt romney wasn't comfortable talking

tammy baldwin very exciting race there. the other thing that's good there i guess scott walker beat us in the recall because the republican turnout was even higher than the democratic turn out, but in the democratic election, the students will be out in madison and milwaukee, i think we will win and that would be a very exciting race, an amazing woman and a smith college graduate like myself. >> there you go. let's talk about another really important race that everybody's been watching, of course is massachusetts, democratic elizabeth warren. she has a 50% to 47% edge to defeat scott brown. it's the highest profile senate race in the country. do you think she'll win? >> i do. once she pulled ahead, i don't think these departments are going to back off of her. there's only so much ticket splitting and obama is just roaring out of massachusetts. remember the states that had him as governor are rejecting him. i think that we're going to do very well there. i want to watch for what happens when people talk about elizabeth warren's future, running for president and other things. >> i know.
, scott walker, also wants to scale back voting registration. >> states across the nation have real problems because the vast majority have poll workers who are working 12 hour days and most are retirees and it's difficult for them to handle the folks that come at the last minute. it would be much better if it was done in advance of election day. >> better for who? republicans? what are these people doing? voter suppression that alienates minorities, that alienates women. this is the kind of thing that led to losing the election. senator john mccain went on fox news yesterday. and while he didn't say much that i agreed with, he did say this. >> there is no doubt what so oh ever that the demographics are not on our side and we are going to have to give a much more positive agenda. and as far as young women are concerned, i don't think anybody like me, i can state my position on abortion but other than that, leave the issue alone. >> leave the issue alone. and if republicans don't, they'll pay the price again on the next election day. joining me now is alena maxwell and alicia menende

'll be talking to governor jindal and governor scott walker. >> what's interesting about this is mitt romney held a conference call with some of his top donors this week, and you may have heard about it, where he said, listen, the reason the democrats won is obama and the democrats were giving, he said, gifts to hispanics and young people, pell grants, tuition aid, and things like that and obama care, that those were gifts. republicans like jindal fired back, can't divide the country, and the people who voted for democrats didn't just do it because they want things from government. there's really an effort to turn the page on 2012 as quickly as possible and try to reshape this party. we'll talk to bobby jindal and scott walker at the top of the hour about that. >> lots to talk about. thank you so much for your time. >> you bet. >> you can catch fox news sunday at 9:00 a.m. after our show. >>> video captured by nasa friday still making headlines across the web. this is incredible. this is the sun unleashing a monster eruption of super hot plasma. fortunately, it wasn't aimed at earth. if it had be
